Movement

Young children need opportunities to move and explore with their bodies. Creative Movement is a great way to channel all of their natural energy, using it to learn while having fun.  We do not focus on a particular style of dance; like ballet, tap, or jazz. Instead, Creative Movement teaches the concepts that underlie all dance forms such as; shape, level, speed, size. 

This is taught by Erica Steinweg every week

Language

The CH Library visits pre-schools and elementary schools in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights community four times a year to share stories, songs, and books.

Nature

An excellent opportunity for students to experience nature first-hand with the guidance of a naturalist.  Naturalists adapt nature center programs to the classroom to help children learn about Northeast Ohio wildlife and their adaptations.

Outside Play

The Fairmount Co-op Preschool has a wonderful playground for our children to use when the weather allows. It is surrounded by a fence and kept up by parents of our students. Currently, the children are able to use a swing set, a sandbox, a miniature house, a slide and a jungle gym.
